Implemented in the fall of 2004, the Public School Academy (PSA) Scholarship Program was created by the School/University Partnership Office (SUPO) at Saginaw Valley State University (SVSU) to make college accessible and affordable for all students who graduate from their authorized PSAs. The PSA Scholarship Offers high school seniors who graduate from an SVSU Authorized PSA that are admissible to SVSU, a 4-year $6,000 renewable scholarship.
In an effort to increase University graduation and retention rates, SUPO developed the Public School Academy Transition Program. Founded in the fall of 2011, the PSA Transition Program works in partnership with SVSU's enrollment management and student service offices to:
Students who receive a PSA scholarship enter the Transition Program and are placed into an intense college readiness program that provides supports in and outside of the classroom. Some of the supports include, volunteer experiences, leadership experiences, employment, professional development opportunities, social-emotional support, study abroad experiences and academic advising.
